Jessie Veeder Music

 Sounds like dirt roads and dust, wind and wheat fields, hope and home…

 Jessie Veeder has been a symbol of folk music in the badlands of Western North Dakota since she released her first album  at only 16 years old. Since then she has gone on to have a successful career in the music industry.

Her latest studio release Nothing’s Forever is alternative country with a heartbeat, ringing with the lonesome sound of the dobro, harmonica, fiddle and acoustic guitars and the haunting and heart-wrenching lyrics Jessie is known for.

Nothing’s Forever features the internationally recognized single Boomtown, Jessie’s homage to the people working to make a living in oil country.

  1. Some of my favorites you might also like (and I like your sound) are Ingrid Michaelson, Diamond Jim Greene, Bill Miller and Robbie Robertson. You sing well, write your own lyrics and I’d like to think I was a small musical influence on your father, even though I was in Watford only 2 years. I took the classical performance route, but, spend lots of time in folk venues in Chicago.

  2. I like your voice, I’m gonna stop by regularly. I wondered does that kind of places still exists… Greetengs form Croatia, Zagreb :)

  4. I will be back in Grassy Butte for a family reunion around the Fourth of July. Will you be doing any preformances around then? Your photos make me so homesick for that area.

  5. Looks like the best time to see you this summer will be when u are in Minn. for me(august). I’m leaving the middle of June -the end to go out East to see my sister, in Asheville ,NC(big blue grass fan) and go see my brother who has been at a rehab place but now in the hosp due to low blood pressure infection. My brother had Hodgkin s Lymphoma and encephalitis(which made him paralyzed) temporary..it is an uphill battle it seems so we never know the hands we are dealt until it happens. Wishing you a blessed week..Amen to the sunshine. Nicole

  6. Hi, Jesse –

    I think it’s been near 10 years since I tracked you down at UND for a little interview, photo and recital session for an article for the REC magazine. Side by side stories with you and Peggy Lee!

    I enjoy your commentary on Prairie Public and your website/blog is a joy to follow. It’s great you’re blossoming so wonderfully as artist, musician, philosopher and cowpoke.

    C ya round!

  9. I have a great coincidence to tell you about.

    My name is Carter McNamara. My great-grand parents are Benjamin and Antoinette Veeder. My grandmother is Elle Veeder — Edgar’s sister.

    Anyway, last week, a friend of mine (who lives in Minneapolis near me, and is not from North Dakota) mentioned a song, “This Road,” that he bought at the Museum in Watford.City when coming back from Canada. He said it’s sung by a woman who’s last name is Veeder. I looked at the CD and it’s yours! What a coincidence :-)

    He played the song for me. It’s beautiful!

    (Your slide guitarist is a great friend of mine, Jimmie Christensen.)

    Thank you!

    • Oh my gosh Carter, so great to hear from you and to hear the connections! There is a great photo of Benjamin and Antoinette Veeder on their homestead in the Pioneer Museum. I love that photo and to think of how they lived and built their life out here. So glad you ran into someone who liked the CD! Maybe some day you can take a trip out to the ranch for a visit. Thanks again, so much for your note Carter!

  10. And the coincidences just keep coming … here’s another.

    A few months ago, I was driving across North Dakota, and happened to be listening to a hilarious story on public radio, about a woman who was celebrating a wonderful rainfall by sliding down a wet, clay butte on her land — and getting her butt bruised along the way.

    At the end of the story, the radio moderator said, “That was Jessie Veeder.”

    Benjamin and Antoinette, Edgar, Pete and Gene must be so proud of you! I hope you are, too.

  14. Just caught the tail end of your performance with Lonesome Willie on PPTV: Boomtown is a powerful tune, beautifully delivered. All the best from Manitoba and hope to see you and LW live in the near future.

  15. I love that part of the state and grew up mostly on a family farm and cant wait to get back home after all these years Your pics show the beaty of ND and why we love it Good luck and Godspeed.
